Daniel Robert Ayres and Sidonie/Sidney/Sidey Rainey/Raney were married in Caldwell County in Feb. 1864. With them in the 1870 census, in addition to the four Ayres children I know belong to that family (Fannie, Cemantha, Seda Kitt and David, are three boys born before that date, Isaac J., John R. and William R. I believe these children to have been the children of Sidonie Rainey Ayres by two prior marriages, even though they are listed under the name Ayres. I believe that Isaac J., born Alabama circa 1854, was really the Isaac James Fowler who married Mary Emelene (Mollie) Head in Caldwell County in 1879. I think the other two boys, shown as born in Texas circa 1860 and 1862, were in actuality John Rector Rainey, who married Mary Thrasher, and William R. Rainey. If anyone is researching these Fowlers or Raineys, I would appreciate hearing from them. My primary aim at the moment is to find Sidonie Ayres' maiden name. She and D.R. Ayres are buried in Block I of the Lockhart City Cemetery, but the stones bear no dates or other information. Other than her birthdate, in February 1832, and the fact that she was born in Georgia, this is all I know about her. Thanks for your help.
